Law for Employees

Law for EmployeesWhen things aren’t going to plan at work you can feel like you’re all alone.  Making sure you get a fair deal can feel impossible.  That’s where we come in – Bristol’s leading employment lawyers.

Our specialist employment solicitors and barristers don’t only work for big organisations. We’re also there for executives and employees as well.

There are two main things that sets us apart from ‘claimant’ firms who put all their focus on advising employees.

First of all, we actually spend the majority of our time advising large employers, so when we support executives and employees instead, you can be sure that we know every trick in the book and exactly what outcomes and risks your employer is thinking about.

Secondly, despite all our work for employers, every client of ours gets the same high quality advice, attention to detail and one-to-one approach – and you will be no exception.

We can help

Whether you’re having a few problems at work and want some advice, feel that you’ve been treated unfairly, are facing changes to your working conditions or are facing the end of your employment – we’re right by your side.  Our Bristol-based employment solicitors and barristers will bring to bear our extensive experience of employment tribunal claims, harassment, discrimination, unfair dismissal, constructive dismissal, contract law, pay, pensions and other relevant areas to ensure that you get the very best advice and the best deal possible.  We will help you to understand the rights you have and the best courses of action for your individual circumstances.

Best of all, we speak plain English – to everyone.  That means a guaranteed friendly approach, with clearly explained legal options so that you can understand quickly and clearly what your best options are and how to go about achieving them.

Our employment solicitors and barristers will fight hard for you.  And we aren’t afraid to be frank with you about whether it’s worth fighting for.  We’re not in the business of wasting your time or money, so we’ll tell it to you straight.  At the end of the day we want you to feel we’ve given you the very best, personal service, grounded in honesty and expertise.

Discrimination and harassment

We have an enormous amount of experience and skills to offer you when it comes to a situation involving discrimination or unlawful harassment at work.  Whether it is related to sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy/maternity, transgender, race, nationality, disability, age, religion or belief, we are the experts who can help you understand your legal rights and decide the best steps to take in dealing with whatever you may be facing in your workplace.

Equal pay

Equal pay is a particular specialism of ours.  As knowledge of the gender pay gap and equal pay rights becomes more widespread, we are increasingly helping employees in situations where they believe they are being paid less than a colleague of the opposite sex doing the same sort of work.  If you feel you may be in that situation, just get in touch and we will assess whether we can help you.

Don’t just take our word for it

When we at Menzies Law buy something important, we like to be choosy and we always find positive testimonials from other happy clients helpful when making our choice.  If you do too, please take a look at these testimonials from recent executive and employee clients.

How much do we cost?

It’s important to talk about costs up front.  It’s all explained here.
